BlueCats SafetyTags offer accurate and easy contact tracing on construction sites

BlueCats’ SafetyTags offer a way to get employees back to work safely by ensuring social distancing with a small, rugged wearable device.

Powered by a lithium-ion polymer battery good for 30+ days per charge, BlueCats SafetyTags are designed to bring complete digital awareness to your job sites. With Bluetooth LE technology, any tagged personnel or assets are identified and tracked with up to GPS-level accuracy in your specified work zones.

Using BlueCats Loop software, users can search, find, and visualize the tag data to understand how personnel and assets move through the job site. In the cloud-based Loop engine, user data is always accessible on your devices, wherever you are.

For Covid-19 contact tracing, BlueCats’ UWB Grid solution offers real-time personnel tracking data with accuracy and proximity awareness. 

The device, which measures 110 mm (H) × 75 mm (W) × 15 mm (D) and weighs 200 g (including batteries), can be mounted to a belt clip or attached to a lanyard. It has an IP66 rating and offers no-contact charging (no plugs).

SafetyTags, previously called the BC2611, leverage UWB to fine range other tags, alerting personnel when in proximity and logging up to 100,000 contact events. 

Bluetooth LE enables offloading of stored contact events, as well as remote settings updates.
